Outstanding wedding venue!

As far as we're concerned, everything at The Mission was perfect! The venue looked beautiful, the food was delicious, and the service was so so slick. Erin and her team went out of their way to turn on a great show for us and they delivered. We couldn't be happier with our big day. Thank you!!



Our wedding at the Mission was truly beautiful! Erin and her team were amazing and ensured our day ran exactly as we had dreamt it would. Erin was fantastic to deal with an made planning a wedding from overseas a breeze. All her help and recommendations of wedding contacts from entertainment to accommodation was a huge help.
We had such positive feedback from all of our guests on how delicious the meals were, how professional and accommodating the staff were and what a beautiful venue it was. Having such a stunning setting onsite for so many photo opportunities was defiantly a plus. I can't tell you how much I loved my special day at the Mission. I highly recommend it as a venue.


Exceeded expectations

Right from the get go we got a really good feel from Erin, the Events
Co-ordinator at Mission Estate. Organising the wedding from Sydney meant that a majority of our conversations were over the phone or email with only two face-to-face meetings before our big day, and Erin made it very, very easy for us.

Erin was so organised and detail oriented, and her proactiveness and patience went a long way with us (and our million-and-one questions!).

Needless to say our big day went off without a hitch and we wouldn't have changed a thing! All thanks to Erin and her incredible team.

I highly recommend having your ceremony and reception at the one location, as the grounds have so many great photo opportunities, and the chapel is a fantastic canvas to create a beautiful reception.

Mission Estate holds a special place in our heart now and we'll certainly return for an anniversary celebration in the future.


Fantastic Wedding at the Mission!

My husband and I made the best decision to marry at the Mission Estate Winery, in January 2016. We had such an incredible day!
Having the ceremony and reception at the one venue made it such a smooth day for both us and out guests.
The venue is stunning, perfect for photos in the surrounding vineyard.
The food was seriously delicious, and all of our guests have commented on this.
Erin Speakman is hands-down amazing! Was happy to answer so many emails, meet with us and tend to every little detail. Our day ran so smoothly, and was stress-free, thanks to the hard work of Erin and her team.
The Mission comes highly recommended from us!


Our expectations were exceeded threefold!

We had the most truly incredible wedding at the Mission Estate. Erin the wedding co- coordinator and all of the staff at Mission Estate did such an amazing job that our expectations were exceeded threefold.

Erin's attention to detail, expertise and friendly manner certainly made us feel that our wedding was in the hands of the best in the business. Every single detail was discussed and prearranged which made for a seamless wedding experience.

The staff looked after our guests so well which meant everyone felt relaxed and were able to really enjoy themselves. The food was outstanding, so much variety and so delicious we had so many comments about how great it was.

If you are looking at getting married in the Hawkes Bay I cannot recommend The Mission Estate enough it was truly the best!


We wish to thank Erin and the Mission staff for all their help in making our wedding day just perfect. We were thrilled with the venue, both the set up and the catering were great. Our guests all commented on how perfect the venue and food was. We would certainly recommend the Mission as a wonderful and special place to have a wedding.

My husband and I got married at the Mission last weekend and we are so happy with our choice of venue and are amazed how well the day went! We were so well looked after throughout the whole planning process by Erin the wedding co-ordinator. Erin is truly amazing and we were at great ease with being in her care. With all aspects of our planning Erin provided us with a list of local contacts and variety of options. The Mission ensures that your wedding day is stress free and runs perfectly smooth, which ours most certainly did! We have had such great feedback from our guests saying that it was the best venue they had been to, best food/wine and fantastic service. There are also many amazing photo opportunities at the Mission which meant we could have all of our photos taken on site. We are absolutely thrilled with the memories we will forever have of our wedding day at the Mission!

The perfect wedding venue

We cannot thank Erin and the team at Mission Estate enough for putting together the most perfect wedding for us. From our first meeting nearly two years ago, Erin was there for us every step of the way, helping us work through the details, introducing us to potential suppliers (photographers, florists, etc), and responding to our emails at all hours of the night. On the wedding day, it was so easy to relax and enjoy it, knowing that Erin and her team had everything under control. The food and wine was divine – the hardest part was choosing what to have on our menu. We’ve had so many compliments on how perfect the day was and are so grateful to Erin & her team. If you want a perfect wedding, we thoroughly recommend Mission Estate : )

What a day!

Our wedding at Mission Estate Winery was absolutely amazing! The scenery is stunning and the service Erin and her team provided was second-to-none. Erin was so amazing and answered all our queries from start to beginning. We had a stress free day as we knew everything would be taken care of by the professional staff at the Mission. On top of all this, the food was to die for and all our guests commented on this. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We would highly recommend this venue for your wedding xox

Our Dream Wedding 1.3.14

A HUGE thanks to the team at Mission Estate Winery - our wedding day was perfect and much of the thanks for that goes to them. They are an absolute pleasure to work with - nothing is a problem and they are super organised. We have had so many amazing comments about the venue, food, wine, service and the seamless organisation of the day and the credit for that is all theirs. We would have absolutely no problems recommending the Mission as a wedding venue (and in fact have done so on at least a couple of occasions already!). Our day was everything we wanted to it to be and we wouldn’t change a thing!
